He has committed infernal serial murders in diabolic ways that one cannot even imagine and his victims range from young women to even children. The police have chased him for a long time, but were unable to catch him. One day, Joo-yeon, daughter of a retired police chief becomes his prey and is found dead in a horrific state. Her fiance Soo-hyun (Lee Byung-hun), a top secret agent, decides to track down the murderer himself. He promises himself that he will do everything in his power to take bloody vengeance against the killer, even if it means that he must become a monster himself to get this monstrous and inhumane killer.

the predictable ending and great performance of lead actors.

This is definitely another awesome movie from South Korea with Min-sik Choi from Oldboy. But, instead of playing the protagonist, he plays the villan of the story and does a fantastic job of it. It's action packed and disturbing, and although a lot of the characters seem to be really good at surviving blunt force trauma to the head, it still had great camera work, a great score, great performances, and was successfully emotional where it needed to be. If you love messed up and violent emotional revenge stories, then this movie's for you. Definitely worth watching.
